Cosmetic Dentistry

At Libby Dental, our advanced technology and services now include Same Day Dentistry to restore the appearance and health of your teeth in one visit.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Put simply, cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth, gums, and/or bite. It’s one of our favorite branches of dentistry because we love watching patients’ faces change as they see their improved smiles for the first time! Cosmetic dentistry goes beyond a physical transformation as well — embarrassment and lowered self-confidence become things of the past!

Cosmetic dental procedures like veneers, crowns, dental bonding, recontouring, and teeth whitening can quickly and easily fix small cosmetic or imperfections.

Am I A Candidate For Cosmetic Dentistry?

You might be! Do you have…

  • Tooth decay?
  • A gummy smile?
  • A chipped or broken tooth?
  • MIsshapen or irregular teeth?
  • Small gaps between your teeth?
  • Stains on your teeth or any discoloration?

Digital Smile Design in San Diego

With cosmetic dentistry treatments, we can create a beautiful smile even after significant damage, staining, or decay. We want every patient to love their smile, and we will work with you to achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted!

If you have any imperfections that make you cringe at your reflection in the mirror, cover your mouth when laughing, or refuse to show your teeth when smiling, let us help you. Dr. Libby and the entire team here at Libby Dental understand the emotional weight that dental issues can carry.

We provide digital smile design to help you see what your cosmetic dentistry plan will do for your smile. This helps you begin treatment with confidence because you know that your treatments will help you achieve your goals.

Our goal is to have you bound out of the dentist chair feeling brand new with a smile that you can’t wipe off of your face!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can be used to design and create your perfect smile. Veneers for teeth are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry procedures available and can be used to accomplish multiple smile goals at once.

If you’d like to change the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers might be the best option for you!

Repair Chipped Teeth

Cosmetic bonding uses a composite material that can be molded against your tooth to fix the appearance of damage or enhance the tooth’s shape. After the composite has been applied and shaped, we cure it with a specialized light that bonds the composite to the tooth.

Cosmetic bonding is perfect for patients who are looking for affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Replace Missing Teeth

A missing tooth is a serious health concern that makes you feel awful about your smile. We can replace your missing teeth with a bridge or a crown placed atop a dental implant, so you can love your smile again!

If you are missing many teeth, talk to us about implant dentures or the All-on-X procedure! We have solutions that can help you enjoy a fully functional and beautiful smile again!

Teeth Whitening

Our teeth whitening treatment can give you the brilliant, dazzling smile you’ve always wanted. Teeth whitening from a dentist can be either an in-office treatment or given as a take-home kit. Our whitening treatment is completely safe and will effectively brighten your smile!

Aesthetic Restorations

At Libby Dental, we fill teeth and cavities with a tooth-colored composite filling to protect your smile from tooth decay or damage. Our composite fillings help build a healthy, white smile that looks and feels natural to support your oral health for many years.

A dental crown can be used in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments. Using a dental crown, we can enhance or restore the shape of your natural tooth and improve your smile’s aesthetic. Dental crowns look completely natural and beautiful.

Now with CEREC technology, we can create stunning crowns in a single appointment!

Even Gums

A gummy smile is one that has excess gum tissue covering up the tooth. This is a simple problem to resolve. If you have a gummy smile, we can recontour your gum tissue to create a more pleasing appearance.

We want you to show off your healthy teeth, so you have a smile you can’t wait to share!

Cosmetic Dentistry Costs

Cosmetic dentistry is more than just a pretty smile. It is an investment in employment possibilities, wooing the love of your life, and making precious memories with the ones you love most! We want to make all of these wonderful things possible by giving you a smile you want to share.

Every smile design plan is different. We know that everyone deserves a dazzling smile, so we offer a number of options that can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. We can talk to you about the cost of your plan and options that can help you make your dream smile fit into your budget.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

If there is something you do not like about your smile, then yes! We can help any smile become more brilliant through our selection of cosmetic services, including restorative services for those who are missing teeth.

What if I have not been to the dentist in a long time?

When you do not see the dentist, your smile and oral health suffer. We can help you restore your oral health and create a beautiful smile for you! The plan we recommend for you may include some services to make your mouth healthy again, but we will get started on your new smile as soon as possible.

Your plan may include something called a full mouth rehabilitation, which is a term that we use to describe a set of treatments that are designed to restore your health. This rehabilitation is a valuable step in restoring both your health and your smile, and we will be here for you every step of the way.

How do I know these treatments will help?

We can share a digital smile design that shows you what certain treatments can do for your smile. This means that you can be confident in your treatment plan as we work on creating your new smile!

What will my smile design include?

This varies from patient to patient, but we do not start planning until we know what you want from your new smile and what your health needs are. These two steps help us create treatment plans that work for you!

Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?

No! We do not begin working until you are comfortable, whether that means a few minutes of conversation or one of our sedation options. We want you to feel relaxed while we help you enjoy your best smile yet!

How much will my smile design cost?

Your smile design is based on your individual needs. We can help you choose a plan that works for your goals, your health, and your budget.
